V'Ahavtah
Love Me with all your heart, all your soul, with all your might...
  let these words enter your heart...

Teach them to your children...
   speak of them
     when you sit in your house, walk by the way,
        lie down, rise up...

Bind them as a sign upon your hand, be as frontlets between your eyes...
  inscribe them upon the mezuzot of your house, and on your gates...

V'Haya Im Shamoah
Listen carefully to My teachings...
  Love, Serve,
   with all your being, with your deepest soul...
     then the rains will come upon your land in its season...
        the autumn rains and the spring rains, and
           you shall gather your grain, your wine, and your oil...
     There will be grass in your field for your cattle,
         and you shall eat... and be satisfied...

Be mindful...lest your heart be deceived...
 and you turn and serve other gods, and bow down to them...
  then the skies shall shut up, the rains will not fall,
   the earth will not yield her abundance,
    and you shall quickly perish from upon the good earth which I gave to you...

Place these words upon your heart...
  bind them as a sign upon your hands, be for frontlets between your eyes...
    teach them to your children, speaking of them
       as you sit in your home, walk by the way, lie down and rise up...
  Write them upon the mezuzot of your home... and on your gates...

That your days and the days of your children may be many upon the land
   which I promised to your ancestors to give you
       as long as the heavens are over the earth.

V'Yomer
Make tzitzit on the corners of your garments
throughout your generations.
Place in them a blue thread.
So when when you see it, you'll remember My teachings
and do them.

Do not turn after your hearts and your eyes, after that which you long for,
rather, remember and follow My teachings.

Through these you'll receive guidance, know
sacredness, come close to Me.

I am your God
Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt
to be your God.

I am your God.

Ezrat Avoteinu
You've been the help of my ancestors,
shield and aid to their children in every generation.

In the core of the universe is Your dwelling.
Your justice and righteousness flow to the ends of the earth.
Deep gladness fills the one who knows Your teachings, and
who's placed Your Torah upon their heart.

From Egypt You redeemed my people,
from the house of slavery You delivered them.
Amidst deaths of the first borns You redeemed them.
Spliting the Red Sea enabling them to pass through.
Her waters covered their pursuers,
not one of them remained.

My ancestors lifted voice,
singing hymns, songs, praises, blessings and giving thanks to You,
Who causes the proud to fall and raises up the lowly,
Who brings out the captives and frees the poor,
Who returns for the oppressed and answers those who cry out.
Praises, blessings to You.

Moses and the children of Israel filled with awe sang,
"Who is like You among the spirits, God,
Who is like You?
Glorious, Holy, Awesome,
Doing wonders?"

You ever constantly go
  breathing life into the dead, Great Reviver...

  (from Pesach to Simchat Torah: )                                        causing the dew to fall...
      nourishing life compassionately...

With overflowing tenderness, You infuse dead places with life...
   healing the sick...releasing the bound...
      faithfully being with those who lie in dust...

Who is like You One of Who Strength?
Who can even come close to You, Powerful One...
  Who guides me both out of and into life...
     Who causes unseen sources of help to spring up...
        Who unceasingly folds life into dead places...
           Blessings to You, Sower of life into the dead.
